Re: Strap in for a long ride
The way I look at is Faith can come over to the peanut gallery after she's done with the Great Debate. Also, Jazz and Faith might find some of our comments useful.

GD topic much too broad...
I see that the GD is pretty much over with at this point. In my opinion, while the discussion was interesting, the topic was too general. Debating the entire Grand Canyon as a whole is impossible.

Heck, you couldn't do a Ph.D. on the Grand Canyon!

Maybe in the future, geologic topics should be much much narrower in scope - if possible. Perhaps discussing a single Formation or Group within the Grand Canyon. Or why a certain rock shows evidence for deposition/formation under specific conditions.

YECism gets a hand in geology only when Creationists are able to generalize. When you get down to specifics, YECism loses.

Re: GD topic much too broad...
Didn't Faith pretty much say she was done when she said "goodbye?" But I understand, Faith has stated many times she was leaving and is still here. I'm not starting a discussion on the GD yet.

Anyway, the problem is the scope of the topic. It's much too broad which results in long posts that are frustratingly time-consuming for Faith and jazz to write, read, reply to.

Narrowing it way down will help them both. What about only duscussing the Temple Butte Limestone and associated contacts?

Re: GD topic much too broad...
okay. Apparently I did not read enough of the thread. My apologies.
